Patience is a sweet four year old female Dudley Lab.
She is house trained and crate trained.  She is amazingly wonderful in the house.patience_yetta_libby_dec_18_2016-096

Patience comes when called, in fact, she will not stray away from our side and does not even like to venture far from the back patio.  She has come almost as far as the barn, but not quite.  She is not impressed by the horses!

She loves to eat and will do most of anything for a morsel or treat.  This makes her very easy to train.  Sitting by the dining room table when we are eating is one thing she likes to do.

Patience tends to be a bit underfoot but after awhile will back off abit.  I have gotten after her for being too close when I am going down the steps.  I have been working on her waiting either at the top or at the bottom until I finish going up or down the steps.  She is a fast learner.patience_dec_18_2016-4ps

She loves to be where we are be it laying stretched out behind my desk as I type this or laying on a cozy circular bed on the floor at the foot of our bed.  She is a great sleeper and does not get up, make noise, snore or try to climb onto the bed.  She does not bother other dogs either.  Just a really nice dog.

Patience is not so patient when we leave.  In fact, she did some damage on a gate when we left her loose so now she has to stay in a doggy crate in the dining room when we leave the house for any length of time.  She is fine in her crate: she has not chewed at the bars or chewed up her cushion bed that is in the crate.


She loves to follow me out to feed the chickens but will not come close to them.  I admit, the rooster can be intimidating.
And she enjoys playing fetch too.

The first couple days she would not get off the patio and I don’t know if that is because we had a couple feet of snow or it was all new.  But as she gets comfortable she is now following me out into the yard.

She obviously had puppies recently.  We have no information about that situation as she was surrendered to a local shelter with no information, we can only tell you what we know since she came into our program and that information will increase as she is in our home being fostered.  Her breasts will continue to pull up until she looks normal again.patience_dec_18_2016-2ps

She has been great with other animals, well, she can be a tad testy when it comes to sharing a food bowl with other testy dog and she does not like tennis balls taken away from her from a certain other dog (which would be my dog).  But outside of that, she is great and to be honest, most dogs do not like another dog nose trying to shove them out of the food bowl.
